Movie Reviews

Romance and Real Love
Wretched | Roseburg, OR, USA | 04/16/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you like the period pieces, set in Victorian England, then you will love both of these excellent renditions. One is by Jane Austen, Queen of the Romance Novels - the other by one of the Bronte sisters - both of whom each wrote an incredible opus. These two movies are a delight to watch. They take us back to a simpler time - except it was not simple to navigate the very difficult nuances of moral behavior. The slightest hint of scandal, associations with people below your station - all pitfalls that seem unbelievable to our modern society. However, they were all too real to the people who lived, loved and balanced their hearts against the mores of their day. These romance novels have been copied, but never equaled. Don't miss either of them!"
Jane Eyre missed the mark
A. Cassella | Califorina | 05/18/2010
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I have seen five different versions of Jane Eyre and this one was by far the worst. It was almost too painful to watch. Many things were changed and left out. The one thing that most upset me was the interaction bewteen Mr. Rochester and Jane. From what they presented it would be difficult to understand why the two fell in love in the first place. I recommend the 1983 BBC version with Timothy Dalton and Zelah Clarke or even the 1973 BBC version with Sorcha Cusack and Micheal Jayston. The 1973 version is shorter, but it includes scenes that are missing in the 1983 version.
Emma, however, was a well written adaptation. I had pleasure watching it, though it was rather short. This movie is the only reason that it got two stars. Emma would have recieved four or five stars from me, but Jane Eyre is on the negative scale. I suggest buying Emma seperatly."
